2014 Bentley Mulsanne vs. Its Competition

2014 Bentley Mulsanne
Davis Adams Davis Adams Contributor

The Mulsanne has only one real competitor, and that's the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

While the brands were once bound together, recent years have seen fierce competition between the two, as each has sought to define its own niche offering.

For the buyer who could be made happy in either car, both come with a level of opulence and performance not found elsewhere in the market–and the same could be said for their pricing.

The Mulsanne has the edge on power, though the ultimate choice will come down to aesthetics and preference–as any good luxury purchase should.

Quick Specs
9.2
Shopping for a 2014 Bentley Mulsanne is like buying tailor-made clothing. If you want it, you can have it.
8.2
The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.
8.4
With a hot new look, a Hybrid, some world-first technology, and much-improved cabin refinement--combined with a sharp, eager driving character--the 2014 Infiniti Q50 seeks new sport-sedan believers.
8.4
What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
8.2
With backseat space as the one caveat, the 2014 Jaguar XF lineup can at once be refined, nimble, and a scorcher of a performer in XFR or exclusive XFR-S guise.
8.6
Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.
